HISTORY OF THE COLLEGE
N.A.M College, Kallikkandy, had been the long cherished dream of the people in the region. The people of this region had no immediate access to any institution of higher learning until the establishment of N.A.M college on 16-06 1995. The college was inaugurated by the then Minister for Education, Government of Kerala, Janab E.T.Muhammed Basheer. It was affiliated to the University of Calicut in the beginning and later with the establishment of Kannur University its affiliation was transferred. It is a government aided college run by Muslim Educational Foundation, Panoor. In the initial stage the college functioned in Imdadul Islam Madrassa in Kallikkandy town. There were only three under-graduate departments – B.A. History, B.Sc. Computer Science and B.Com at the time of beginning of the college. The founder-principal of the college was 13 Prof. N. Kunhammed. In 1997 the college was shifted to the present site. The college received UGC 2(f) status on 18-7-2002 and 12 (B) status on 14-9-2004.
N.A.M College Kallikkandy is the materialization of a dream of an educationally and socially backward people in the south-east region of Kannur District in Kerala. The Muslim population in the region, despite its recent relative economic improvement achieved through employment in Gulf countries, noticeably lags behind in the matter of educational and social advancement. Considering this situation, the Muslim Educational Foundation, Panoor, started this center for higher learning, N.A.M College (named after Janab N.A. Mammu Haji, a philanthropist and for MLA) in 1995. The college started functioning with three undergraduate programmes (B.A. History, B.Sc Computer Science and B.Com) in Imdadul Islam Madrassa in Kallikkandy town on 16-06-1995.Later on three more undergraduate programmes (BSc. Polymer Chemistry, B.Sc Mathematics and B.A English) two post-graduate programmes (M.Com, Govt. aided and M.Sc Computer Science, unaided) were started. The college was shifted to the present site in 1997.
